I was going to post something about, you know . . . sewing today. But then I took a little trip down memory lane in my photo album, and I just felt like sharing these. I hope you don't mind!
In 2009, I spent a lot of time right here, amidst my sewing clutter:
I designed a dress and entered it into a contest, and took second place. (I'm number two! I'm number two!)
Pip was adorable.
And, at times, skeptical.
We went to Hawaii, and I met a Hawaiian cat.
We adopted a new family member. This is the first time I held Henry!
He was a pathetic, skinny little thing. A cab driver found him living on the street!
But he picked up sewing pretty quickly.
Is it just me, or does Jeff get more handsome every year? This is a summer day spent in Central Park.
I started a blog! Remember this little number?
And this one?
My parents came to visit in August!
Jeff and Dad rode the Cyclone in Coney Island, and lived to tell the tale.
Mom and I stuck with the carousel.
Me and Dad on the Wonder Wheel.
Mom and I went fabric shopping, of course.
Mom met Swatch, Mood's friendly mascot.
And then she marveled over the selection at Pacific Trims. They don't have stuff like this in Cottonwood, AZ!
Mom and Dad celebrated their 40th anniversary in June. How cute are they?!
I got a fabulous job. My wonderful coworkers and I spent a fun day volunteering in a soup kitchen. Here's what I look like in a hair net, if you're curious.
This is what I looked like a lot of the time. My right eyebrow grows down, instead of into a nice arch. I should really do something about that. Some sort of eyebrow gel, perhaps?
What a year, indeed. Thank you all so much for being a part of it!
